Atoll capital is Thulusdhoo even tho the capital of Maldives – Malé is also located within the same atoll. The whole island group, the Maldives, is named after its capital and the word "Maldives" means "The islands (dives) of Malé”. Kaafu atoll is the tourism hub of the country as the only international airport - Ibrahim Nasir International Airport is located there. Every tourist arrival to the Maldives first reaches in Kaafu atoll before getting transferred to their final holiday destination – resort or a local island.
Maafushi is one of the islands in Maldives with a thriving local economy. While more than sixty families benefit directly from fishing, tourism industry has taken a new turn since 2010. With the government regulation allowing opening of Guest Houses in local islands, Maafushi was the first to secure an investment in tourism accommodation. The first guest house was opened in January 2010, and since then, many more have opened and they have provided the local community with foreign currency inflows. Tourists from neighboring resort islands also visit Maafushi for island hopping and Maafushi provides them with shopping opportunity with souvenir shops at assigned areas of the island.
There are more than 40 guest houses in Maafushi as at December 2015, and it is the local inhabited island with most number of guest houses and guest beds in the country. The guest houses provide the island with direct employment, and many other indirect economic benefits to almost every family in the island. Most guest houses are funded by direct investments by local residents of the island. However, recently there have been investments by businessmen in Male' and elsewhere.
Guest houses provide various excursions, including, snorkeling, fishing, water sports, and picnic island excursions.
